Triumph recall Trident on side stand safety

Triumph Australia has recalled its new Trident 660 over an issue with the safety of the side stands.

The official notice issued through the Federal Government says the bike’s side stand mounting bracket “may become damaged over time”. 

“The side stand may fail when the motorcycle is parked,” it says.

“If this occurs, the motorcycle may fall over, which could increase the risk of injury to the rider and passenger, or bystanders.”

Owners are advised to contact their authorised Triumph dealer to have the work carried out “as soon as possible”, free of charge.

The recall is the first for Triumph this year after four last year when there were 46 recall notices, the highest number monitored since 2009 and significantly more than the previous high of 37 in 2018.
